I guess besides factories. In what industry to people move as fast and with as much precision? Not to be all smug and all but I can't think of any. Construction workers don't, mechanics don't, anyone have an idea?
In what profession do workers work as fast as in a kitchen?
I was 16.
I do know however that when I multi-task, I usually have a minimim of five things on the go. When
I do woodworking as a hobby, I can only focus on the job at hand.
Didn't like the youtubes? Ok, how about magicians, surgeons, EMT's
I might come with more if I have time to think about it.
OK. Musicians, professional athletes, professional Gamers. IBB

Construction workers definitely don't I use to work in it. You have a job you get on with it if it doesn't get done today it will get done the next day. Rarely is their pressure. I had a little spell in construction after being in a kitchen and I was like "What are you getting stressed about?! This isn't pressure"
Although I read and article once that listed the most stressful jobs and construction was in it and begin a chef wasn't
Factory work can certainly be that way. I made bricks one summer between semesters at college. Big mixing auger up about 20 feet above the system fed dry clay powder, colorant and water. Mixed clay fed into an extruder feeding a continuous extrusion of brick onto a conveyor belt. The clay extrusion moved into a cutter, probably 20 wires each strung in three sets that would rotate and slide at the rate of extrusion to cut them to size. The line of cut bricks hits the next belt moving at a higher speed to separate the bricks. The bricks need to be flipped 90 degrees for stacking so they dry right with the warm air moving up through them. Stacked with space between them. So one guy flips bricks as fast as he can move. Sometimes you'd need two flippers. 12 guys are taking wet bricks 2-4 at a time off this line to load 6 pallets at a time for the dryer. Any bricks that get missed get fed back into the mixing auger. Missing bricks was a bad thing as it tended to over pressurize the extruder for some reason.
There was an automated loader mechanism for this. I never saw it in operation. It was more reliable and faster to do it by hand at that time in the 80s.
I did a lot of the brick flipping. Motion sickness was high in the flippers, most could only take 30 minutes of the brick flipping and go back to stacking.
